My apologies for my sporadic comments here but I'm far more active on flickr than on DA these days. One of the main reasons is that on flickr you can preview your contacts' images without having to subscribe (though I *do* subscribe to flickr). It makes keeping up so much easier. Also, I prefer flickr's groups and sets facilities.
Some of my flickr sets in slideshow:
Necropolis Now (Graves tombs and cemeteries).
Gods and Monsters.
I just wanted to say a little thank you to my friend, Dirt for his willingness to pose for me and endure my exortations to "move this way. No, that way. No, better how it was before".
Here are just some of his appearances from my DeviantART gallery (incl. scraps).

One more Dirt:
I've been suffering Comment Deprivation Syndrome. It's kinda sad to admit it, but it's true. Since returning to DA my pics have generated noticeably fewer comments than they used to.
Part of it will be down to the fact that many of my contacts are no longer active, but there also seems to have been a change in the DA culture since the advent of 'reply'. Before 'reply', to respond to someone's comments you pretty much had to go visit their main page, which encouraged you to also have a look at their work and make some reciprocal comments. These days its too easy to just click reply, write 'thanks dude', and move on.
Now, I know as well
